Was brilliant would highly recommend, people, the food and a huge variety of runs to enjoy!
The " cocktail" was a punch and it tasted like it had no alcohol in it, it was not a £7.50 value. The tokens got you to try a normal rum with mixer for what you would pay in a bar and there was food that was overpriced... Basically you pay for entry to a bar and you get fruit juice on entry... Just go to a decent bar and buy some real drinks.
The groupon ticket was for entry and a cocktail.
I could have purchased a ticket with a NHS discount for less but this did not include a cocktail.
However on arrival a very diluted soft drink cocktail was provided for everyone on entry, which was in the glass you were to use for all drinks. So basically everyone had to have a free cocktail to enter.
Upon arrival we had to wait to get in queuing outside and once inside the rums were being poured by students who had no knowledge about the rums or how best to try them.
would not pay full price £17.50 but £10 was ok
we did ask if we could buy tokens for drinks and if we didn't use them all get our money back and one of the organisers said yes of course you can so bought 4 drinks tokens only used 3 so we wanted money back on 1 but when it came to it we were refused a refund,we complained añd 3 of us got a refund but my brother was refused,not good practice
There wasn't as many food bars or rum companies as last year. However it was still a joyful night.
Not many tables and chairs around but had a great time lots of lovely rum to choose from, very nice food and the entertainment was good
Great atmosphere, dancing, brilliant Cuban band and very friendly staff! Cocktails were 👍👍 thank you Rum Festival for a great night!
Not great, not worth the money, expensive drinks, no apm
Great evening you have to buy £5 vouchers per drink but that included a bottle of tonic so not bad value.
Fab night with friends. Good atmosphere, excellent music and an amazing choice of gins and rums. Coconut rum is definitely my new favourite!
